The Cabinet Secretary’s latest response to questions raised by the Health and Sport Committee of the Scottish Parliament has been published today.
Importantly Ms Robison underlines the Scottish Government’s commitment to developing a Workforce Plan for the Health and Social Care workforce.
Scottish Care will be working closely with colleagues in Scottish Government and other wider stakeholders to ensure that the distinctive needs of the social care workforce and in particular the care home, care at home and housing support workforce are properly reflected within such a Plan.
With over 103,000 workers playing a critical part in the delivery of health and social care across Scotland it is important that the distinctive needs of the independent sector are adequately reflected and prioritised.
